Middlesbrough chairman Steve Gibson is hoping his intervention will persuade Australia international Mark Viduka to commit his future to the club.

The 31-year-old striker, who´s contract expires at the end of the month, returned to his homeland this week. He will represent his country in the Asian Cup later this summer, but in the meantime, continues to mull over the contract extension he has been offered at the Riverside Stadium.

Chief executive Keith Lamb said: "I spoke to Mark after the (Fulham) game, while Steve Gibson spoke to him on the phone on Monday morning, so he knows how much he is wanted here. There is no doubt that Steve speaking directly to Mark and telling him how much we want him to stay will have an influence on him."
